Safer Internet Day

Sadly quad bike and all-terrain vehicle theft continues to be an increasing issue across Scotland.

With so much of our daily routine now on the internet – banking, shopping and social networking to name but a few – criminals are increasingly going online to exploit people.

Raising awareness of potential online crimes and providing our communities with important prevention advice are key aims for Police Scotland, and we are pleased to be supporting this year’s Safer Internet Day once again to help reinforce our key messages.

Today, Police Scotland takes part in celebrating the 18th Safer Internet Day, with activity and actions taking place right across the globe.

The theme is once again ‘Together for a Better Internet,’ and the campaign aims to ultimately make the Internet a safer and better place for all – especially for children and young people – while raising awareness of emerging online issues such as cyberbullying, social networking and digital identity.

As part of Police Scotland’s continued programme to help deliver Safer Virtual Communities, education on Internet and online safety is a recognised and integral part of our activity and we continue to work with partners to help protect members of the public.

For more information visit the Safer Internet website, and for further preventative digital and cyber advice visit the Police Scotland website.
